hi i was in my friends sti the other day to watch him race his car from the inside so i can get a good perspective on how to handle this baby. This is what he did. He rev that bytch up to like 6k and I think he drop the clutch cause earlier he said that when he was at like 5200rpm he let out the clutch and it kind of bog a bit so he just dump the clutch at 6k and DAMM! that shyt just took off. My homeboi behind me said he look like it flew or something bc it took off so quick. And then here is the problem where he mess up. I think that foo hit the rev limiter cause all of a sudden we felt the car kind of smutter and i look at the rpm and it was all the way past redline. He shift into 2nd and i heard a grind and than he miss third gear. I was amaze at how fast the sti was and cant wait to launch and do that on my sti but than i was really worried if i might fuk up like him. We talk about it afterward bc i wanted to know what was the negative effect really on dumping the clutch at 6k. Is it hurting the tranny or the clutch and how bad is it hurting it. And what about when he hit the rev limiter and the car smutter, what is that harming and how bad. And the gear grinding...oh man that was a good experience to go through. And man the sti's rpm go up quick as hell, so much faster than a honda you gotta keep your eye on that. Well anyway that is my quesiton up there if any of you can help thanks!
